A WOMAN was allegedly more than three times over the blood alcohol driving limit when she parked a vehicle across multiple shopping centre bays late in the morning in Banksia Grove, police say.

Officers were patrolling the carpark of Banksia Grove Village about 11am on May 21 when they confronted the alleged offender.

Sergeant Chris Wride said police, having received complaints about the woman (51) in the past, were familiar with her. He said the car was not roadworthy but police could not impose a sanction on the woman for driving it because it was in a carpark.

But he emphasised drink driving rules still applied. She was charged with driving under the influence.
